I r back! Hahaha! And with my comeback is one juicy tidbit regarding our favorite game, Granado Espada.
The wait is over, folks! The latest patch for Granado Espada, v.2.6.3, also known as The Requiem, is finally on its way! I won't be revealing the exact day of its release (I leave it to our esteemed Community Managers and IAH staff to unveil the actual date), but I do have some interesting tidbits about the new patch, as graciously supplied by pCM Veya.
Venturing to the Land of Mysteries
As RCM Hrin announced in her blog a few months before, v.2.6.3 features the new map of Chaos Requiem, located between the Bahamas and the jungles of Ustiur. Mysteries and secrets surround the expanse of this new territory, and with the promise of the unknown comes with new opportunities for exploration!
So how does one venture into Chaos Requiem?
So now we know why it's been reiterated time and again that players should aim for Expert level at the very least. From this patch onwards, the Veteran level will soon become a thing of the past.
Anyway, back to the question...how does one go into Chaos Requiem?
Defeat the Great Hill Giant, that's what. The question is, will it be the same GHG monster level as the one in the Faction Quest? And where is the exact location to challenge this hulking monster? That I have to find out...
In order to fully explore the mysteries in Chaos Requiem, one will have to complete the Bahamas Swamp Quests. NPCs such as Igorni, Sharon, Selva, Barons Kurt and Edward, as well as Viscount Montoro will be issuing new challenging quests.
As previously mentioned, The Requiem patch features new bosses, as well as a new raid area: Garim's Nest.
So yeah, you guessed it right. The new raid boss' name is Garim. Little is known what kind of monster is this (or its stats for that matter), so stay tuned for updates (or until I found that out with a bit of research ^^).
Watch out for part 2 of The Requiem updates! Up next: New Game Features in v.2.6.3!
